Motor Vehicle Accident Claims Cover Loads of Situations

Motor vehicle claims cover so much more than just car accidents. Whether you or the other party were travelling by car, motorbike, bicycle, or on foot — you’re still within your rights to make a claim — as long as the accident happened on the road and you were not at fault.

Motor vehicle accident claims cover both physical injuries, like whiplash or spinal injuries, and psychological injuries, like nervous shock or trauma. The types of injuries that can be claimed for vary from a scratch to a fracture.

Remember, strict time limits apply, so it’s important to get in touch for your free initial consultation as soon as you can.

So, what could you be
compensated for?

You can claim for basically any loss directly related to your accident. Think lost income from time off work, medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, and more. You should note that CTP claims don’t cover damage to your vehicle or property, but we’re happy to give you advice on how to recover these losses too.

Here are the most common forms of compensation:

We'll guide you through the process

There’s no perfect formula for making a road accident claim. These cases and claims are as complex as the accidents that led to them and it’s important we get it right. 

We do what we can to make it simple for you though. Typically, our clients are enduring struggles from their accidents, so it’s important we keep things clear and concise for you. You’ll get clear explanations and consistent communication from your lawyer. 

How it works


Initial Consultation

We’ll get things started with a quick phone assessment and an initial consultation. We’ll learn about your experience and your ideal outcome.


Legal Process

We’ll begin the legal process after our cost- and obligation-free consultation. This process can vary greatly and can take a number of years.



Every case and resolution is different. Your claim’s finalisation and (hopefully) payout will conclude the process.

Have a Question?

Making a motor vehicle accident compensation claim can be pretty stressful. We know that often in legal cases, it’s the unknown that’s the scary part. Below are a few of our most frequently asked questions.

You can claim compensation for a range of injuries, providing you were not at fault. Some of the most common types of both physical and psychological injuries includes:

  • Knee, wrist & ankle injuries
  • Fractured or broken bones
  • Neck & back injuries
  • PTSD caused by trauma from the incident
  • Internal injuries (injuries sustained to the kidneys, liver, etc.)
  • Chest injuries
  • Loss of limbs

The CTP scheme allows people who are not at fault to make a claim. The following people can claim compensation for motor vehicle accidents:

•    Drivers or riders
•    Passengers
•    Pedestrians
•    Dependents of a fatally injured person involved in a motor vehicle accident

There are a range of reasons you might claim for compensation. If your suffering — physical or psychological — is caused by another person’s negligence, the best thing you can do is get in touch with our team. Our initial consultations, which are cost-free and obligation-free allow you to get across the process. In most cases, we’ll be able to assess your claim before your consultation, in our initial phone call.

Yes, there certainly are. You generally have nine (9) months from the date of the accident or within one month of your first consultation with a solicitor. As such, our recommendation is that you contact us as soon as possible to know where you stand. Our initial consultations are cost- and obligation-free and confidential, so there’s no risk in having a conversation. Feel free to call our office and we can assess whether or not you have a claim.

Get in touch with our team! The first step is a free, no-obligation consultation. Here, we’ll advise you whether you have a case and are eligible to claim compensation and we’ll provide you with some free advice for navigating the process. Our motor vehicle accident lawyers can help you determine your rights and initiate a compensation claim on your behalf.

Each accident and case is different. We’ll always do what we can to get these matters sorted for you as soon as we can but it is important that you are stable and we have all the evidence together before we settle the claim. We get one shot at these claims, so it’s essential we get it right.

If your claim involves more serious injuries, these may take longer to heal, meaning any medical professionals involved may want to wait before making comment on your future prognosis.

Claims are typically resolved within six months to two years.

It depends! Each case is unique and needs to be accurately assessed after all the facts and evidence are collected. The type of injury, the severity, your age, your employment, and any pre-existing medical conditions are considered.

At our free initial consultation we’ll run through every aspect of your case and any circumstances at hand to offer you advice on your case. 

Most claims are resolved prior to trial and are settled at or after mediation. You are more likely to achieve an early resolution (and avoid court) by engaging a legal professional.
